  • Step 3: Make a business monthly declaration

    Before you make your declaration

    You must provide information as to your current and projected turnover. This is not a retest of your eligibility, but rather an indication of how your business is progressing under the JobKeeper Payment scheme.

    If your eligible employees change or leave your employment, you will need to notify us through this monthly declaration.

    You or your registered tax or BAS agent can make the business monthly declaration.

    If you have employees:

    • ensure you have paid your eligible employees at least $1,500 (before tax) per JobKeeper fortnight that you’re claiming
    • check if your eligible employees have changed or left your employment. If so, you will need to notify us by revisiting Step 2 to maintain their details before completing your monthly declaration.

    Make your declaration

    To make a business declaration each month:

    • log into ATO online services through myGov, or the Business Portal using myGovID
    • view the COVID-19 screen and select Step 3 - Business monthly declaration for JobKeeper payment
    • provide your business' current and projected GST turnover
    • reconfirm your eligible employees
    • reconfirm your contact and financial institution for receiving JobKeeper payments.
